Graduating Candidates

The name on a student’s diploma will appear as the full legal name that Texas State University currently has on file. If the name on the student’s record is incorrect, the student must follow the personal information update procedure to change it. Students are able to apply for graduation until Friday, October 1, 2021 without making the name change first.

Tuesday, January 4, 2022 is the deadline for fall 2021 graduating students to change the legal name that will appear on their diploma. The deadline for students to change their name for the commencement program is Monday, November 8, 2021.
